Each year the Eos Foundation hosts two major awards programs celebrating exemplary groups and individuals, who lead their peers in the battle against food insecurity.
The Healthy Start Award recognizes Massachusetts school-based leaders who contribute to the educational success of the whole child by addressing their nutritional needs. Healthy Start Awards are presented along with $500 to each qualifying school at an annual Healthy Start Awards Ceremony hosted at the Massachusetts State House.
Each year the Eos Foundation recognizes a small number of innovators for their sustained and significant efforts to change the equation on the affordability of healthful food for low-income people. Winners receive a one-time unrestricted $25,000 award. By recognizing these leaders, Eos seeks to inspire others to take action to change the equation on the affordability of healthful food in their communities.
